Sustainable energy projects in developed or new frontier markets can be complex or innovative. If they are assessed and assembled by experienced professionals who are properly incentivised, who understand the risks and how to mitigate them, they are more likely to be commercially viable and successful.

This means that the detail is understood, and that the sources of capital, both external and internal, match the project’s business plan.  Without proper evaluation, preparation, assembly and project management, projects may stall or fail to attract the right form of funding, and as a result are not completed.
